Olds Elevators

Olds Elevator

The Old’s Elevator is a revolutionary new concept for vertically elevating numerous types of bulk materials. With only one moving part – the outer rotating casing – the material is collected and efficiently elevated to the discharge point. Smoothand quiet in operation, the unit is able to infinitely vary the delivery rate from 0 to 100% of RPM and therefore become a very accurate metering device.

The rotating casing has two pick up scoops at the base which collect the product and admit it to the static screw inside the casing with centrifugal force keeping the product against the inner wall and the material is elevated as more product is admitted to the base. Adjustable guides centralize the rotating casing which is mounted in a bearing situated in close proximity to the drive.
